Guide

March 15, 2012

When I grow up I want to be like (fill in the blank)...
When I become a parent I want to be like (fill in the blank)...
I wish I could be as smart as (fill in the blank)...
I wish I could do (fill in profession here) as a profession just like (fill in the blank)...
Too bad I dont have as much money as (fill in the blank)...
I want to go on vacation like (fill in the blank)...
I wish I could lift as much as (fill in the blank)...
I want to be as fast as (fill in the blank)...

I think I can safely say that I have said every one of those statements and I am sure most people at one time or another wish or aspire to be like someone or look like someone. The pisser is, that what "you" dont think about is the path that that person went on to become that person that "you" want to be/look like... I am sure in most cases it wasnt smooth sailing... I am sure that 99% of the time there were snags, suffering, trip ups and what not along their path to "success"... and I would put money on the fact that they said all the above things with others in the blank spots.

So, whats the problem with this. Well... why aspire to be someone else? Why put a face on your goals. Why not break through that wall and set your own goals, not someone else's goals? Let that person/thing be your inspiration, even let it feed your determination... but make it stop there. Use that person as a "guide" rather than a "goal." Understand that YOU yourself are the one who makes the choices and YOU yourself are the one who you want to be in the end. No amount of wishing/praying/dreaming is going to turn you into someone else, or your life into someone else's life. You are in control.

Be proud of your accomplishments, be proud that you have pushed yourself to where you are in life. Set your own goals and kick ass on the way to achieving them. There is far more satisfaction in that that trying to be someone that already exists... you are your own person and you can be BETTER than the person you want to be...
